Permaculture Principles/Solar Energy

According to Bill Mollison, the “Father of Permaculture,” permaculture can be defined as “The conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems.” Mollison believed that we already have all the resources we need to enjoy a good life. It is as simple as cooperating with Mother Earth and all living beings, and by using what we have, and only what we need.

ICG’s Permaculture class offers an overview of Permaculture principles and their application to our home garden needs.
